Creating an artifact that encompasses the various facets of a multi-discinplinary creative company is difficult. Minx Creative of the UK have obviously put in a tremendous amount to work to ensure their company be well-represented. I respect the fact that the book was born from collaboration; it truly appears that each team member had a hand in the final product. Utilizing the strengths of many makes the end product that much more rich.

Our initial intention for the book was to formally introduce our studio to organizations/people that we had come across over the years and really liked. Our first page plans were lengthy, we had produced a vast volume of work since our last book (three years prior), page counts were in excess of 54pp yet our concept was geared towards clarity of communication, the time spent digesting the book should be commensurate to that. Eventually we reduced the extent down to 20pp plus 6pp cover. Our refreshed identity from the previous year and firm sustainability foundation kicked off the initial inspiration of application, we kept with our house stock of Cranes Crest, used two spot colours bar the end signature, limited the run to 100 and carried out the binding (singer-sewn) inside our studio. Our love of paper engineering also played a big part, we designed the finishing aspect so that it could actually be completed in-house pre-binding, apart from the die-cuts and areas to crease. To finish off the book, we packaged it up in cut down potato sacks sewn down with paper (Cranes Crest cut-off) labels. Each member of our team worked on this book from creative, typography, illustration, artworking through to copywriting, photography and final production.

We have been really pleased with how well the book has been received and have had a fantastic response rate, however equally as pleasing has been the positive collective journey/experience we, as a team, have gone through from inception to completion.
